Farewell to Tanya ter Keurs, Nurse Practitioner
After 11 years of providing care to the residents of Princeton, Nurse Practitioner Tanya ter Keurs has announced that she will be transitioning to a new role. Tanya will no longer be providing patient care, but will continue to stay involved in supporting health care within Princeton and the South Okanagan Similkameen.
Tanya joined Cascade Medical Center as a Nurse Practitioner in 2009. She played a pivotal role in supporting health care in Princeton during the transition from turmoil to stability. During her time here she has sat on multiple committees, including the Health Care Steering Committee; she is an active member of the Divisions of Family Practice and started the Youth Clinic at Princeton Secondary School.
Tanya’s last day of work will be November 13th, 2020. Tanya’s patients have been reassigned to the other practitioners at the clinic and patients will be notified either by telephone or letter who their new provider will be. We want to thank Tanya for her years of dedicated service, excellent patient care as well her kindness and leadership. We wish her all the best on her future endeavours!
